Orlando Jones has joined the cast of Len Wiseman's Sleepy Hollow Pilot written by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci. Deadline reports that this is a modern-day supernatural thriller based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow from Kurtzman and Orci's K/O Paper Products and 20th Century Fox TV.
The story follows Ichabod Crane who partners with a local female sheriff in Sleepy Hollow in order to solver the mysteries of the town torn apart from the battle between good and evil.
Jones is in as Lt. Frank Williams who's apparently a professional and series detective sent off to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a double murder. Jones, known in my opinion mostly for films like the very-enjoyable The Replacements, Evolution and The Time Machine, has a big line of credits to his name in both film and TV.
He's currently in post-production phase on The Adventures of Beatle with Michele Hicks, Ever Carradine, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Sarah Shahi, Ivana Milicevic and Tony Shalhoub, as well as Peter Hyams' thriller Enemies Closer. That film also stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Tom Everett Scott
